Melania Trump recently tweeted about a new tennis pavilion and people are pointing out that, given her husband’s impeachment inquiry, it probably wasn’t the best thing to focus on.

Besides which, the project wasn’t something regular Americans could relate to.

Taking to Twitter, the first lady said: “Exciting to break ground on the new tennis pavilion project at the White House today.”

Thank you to all who will help in making this legacy piece possible for future first families to gather at and enjoy for years to come.

People were annoyed with the tone-deaf nature of the tweet

Was a new tennis pavilion something ordinary Americans could relate to? No.

Others chose humour

And there were those who just, could not.
